Toronto, Canada (SPX) Mar 20, 2018

Wanting to make their job a little easier, researchers at the University of Toronto developed a new artificial intelligence algorithm that helped them identify 6,000 previously unseen craters on Earth’s moon.

Researchers first trained the neural network on 90,000 images that covered two-thirds of the moon’s surface before testing its ability to detect craters on the remaining third portion

Huntsville AL (SPX) Mar 20, 2018

Rocket engine nozzles operate in extreme temperatures and pressures from the combustion process and are complex and expensive to manufacture. That is why a team of engineers at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama, developed and proved out a new additive manufacturing technique for nozzle fabrication that can greatly reduce costs and development time.

A new process ca

Predicting the Lifespan of Materials in Space

Cleveland OH (SPX) Mar 20, 2018

Almost every product we use has a shelf life. From milk and meat to laundry detergent and batteries, it’s important to know when it’s safe to use a product, and when it’s time to replace it. But what about materials used for spacecraft?

It is vital for scientists to know exactly how long a material will last in outer space; which is why Kim de Groh, a senior materials research engineer at
